-- it would allow americans to remain uninsured through tax season. without a fine. the fine skill up in subsequent years in order to encourage people to join the health insurance pool. republicans are arguing that the obama administration has given breaks to businesses that would have been required to provide health insurance to their employees. republican said that is unfair that individuals will be fined when employers will not be fined. >> the white house plans to announce further delayed some other parts of the wall. what are you hearing? >> what we expect this week is for the white house to actually allow insured companies to continue to offer plans that do not meet obamacare's minimum coverage requirements for the next couple of years. it will be a major delay for the white house, when they announced this. what it will do is allow insurance companies to continue selling policies that otherwise would have been disqualified under obama's rules for minimum health-care coverage. a policy that does not have maternity care or pediatric care or mental health services included could co
too much, borrows too much, and taxes too much. it reflects says america's priorities to create jobs, strengthen the middle class, and build an economy that creates opportunity for all. went to theell floor yesterday and talked about the president's budget proposal. he said it is not a serious document. [video clip] >> it will probably never past the democratic led senate. in some sense, that is the point. rather than put together a constructive blueprint both parties could use to get the economy moving, the president is opting for the political stunt for a budget that is more about andng up the base in election-year. it would increase taxes by over $1 trillion in the worst economic slowdown anyone can remember. it would explode spending by $790 billion, forcing us to borrow more money. it would do almost nothing to threatsthe serious facing our children's futures and does not come close to balancing this year. mitch mcconnell talking about the 2015 budget proposal. congress will take up budget proposals and will decide what gets spent.

spent over $1.5 trillion which averages out to about $11.2 million tax dollars paid every hour by the american people. in today's national paper, the "usa today," and other headlines, the headline is this, "obama to karzai: time running out for security deal." madam speaker, based on recent polls this would be good news to the american people if we would not continue this relationship with afghanistan. it is nothing but an absolute waste of the taxpayers' money and the american people are sick and tired of it. a recent poll last week by gallup showed that almost 50% of the american people believe that the war in afghanistan was a mistake to start with. i can honestly say this. if it was not a mistake to start with, it's a mistake now that we continue to support and spend money on a corrupt leader named karzai. mr. speaker -- madam speaker, as i listen to the secretary of defense, chuck hagel, yesterday talk about the financial pressure on our military and the budget that he will be supporting that mr. obama has proposed, i wonder why we in congress are not allowed to debate on
negatively impacted taxes imposed upon one of its most dynamic job creators, the medical device industry. how ironic that you go to talk about creating jobs and economic growth, at the same time a proposal, a provision that was incorporated in the so-called affordable care act imposed a -- an egregious excise tax on not the profits but on the sales receipts of medical device companies simply as a pay-for for the obamacare act. as i said, indiana and minnesota, are home to many of the country's largest medical device manufacturers. in fact, my state of indiana exported more than $9.7 billion in life science products, including medical devices, and is second in the country, only to california, in terms of exports of life science products. so it's very important to our state and we have over 300 f.d.a. registered medical device manufacturers. some of them large, some of them small. they employ 20,000 hoosiers directly with an indirect support by nearly 30,000 more. so it's not a small thing for our state. it's one of the, pardon the pun, cutting-edge industries producing devices that improve the
for the tax rates to pay for that. most definitely. caller: our roads are awful. we have a lot of state roads. repair work would really help. where else do you see jobs available besides infrastructure spending? where else do you think the government can help create jobs? caller: i think in the technology,system, private sector. help bringons would about income to a level of being able to take care of your family, cover your living expenses. if that was not for unions, we would not be able to watch you on television right now. so they can rip off citizens and keep low wages and make big profits. thank you. calling in from philadelphia, pennsylvania. fish and sam says the president's budget should be how not to spend others money. also, dean writes in, too bad the gop will kill his budget. are they totally heartless? commentspage, several on that. allen writes in on her thoughts on the president's budget plan. she says stop messing around with other people's lives. we will continue to bring you comments. we want to hear you on the phone. the phone lines are open. ruben in philly on the line fo
the clinton administration and congress last raised the gas tax. that was 21 years ago when gasoline was $1.08 and i wonder if barack had even met michelle and there it remained for 21 years. due to inflation and fuel economy increases, the average cost per mile that the american motorist pays to the federal government for transportation has been cut in half. i went on the budget and the ways and means committee the last eight years in order to deal with this issue, but frankly i'm tired of waiting. i introduced a gas tax increase phased in over three years to fully fund a six-year re-authorization. was pleased to be joined by friends during my bill introduction by the u.s. chamber, the afl-cio, truckers and a.a.a., transit, local government, environmentalists, road builders. i find it hard to say people will say this will be a heavy lift because there's little support for it. when chairman camp offered $150 billion last week in his tax reform bill, what president obama suggested $300 billion, where was their broad base of support? maybe that's why both proposals were called dead on arrival
with a disability, that they can do that in a tax-free -- i should say a tax-advantaged environment and so they can save over time and do it in a manner that doesn't put them at a disadvantage from a tax standpoint down the road. so sara is a great example of why the able act should pass, and she is doing more than her share to make sure that it does pass, so i'm grateful to sara wolfe for doing that. especially grateful to people like sara who like a lot of us at some point in our lives have to overcome the tragedy. sara lost her mother connie not too long ago to a sudden and rapid illness, but she has been able to -- to deal with that tragedy and still help us day in and day out to get the able act passed. i will highlight one more story and then i will conclude. angie king is a 28-year-old who lives in indianapolis, indiana, and like sara wolfe, she lives with downs syndrome. she has had -- angie has had five different jobs and works five days a week. she works paid positions at kohl's on mondays and at the ymca on fridays. on tuesdays, wednesdays and thursdays, she volunteers for several organi

. tonko, will pick up the energy piece. but in the president's budget there are these key sectors, tax policy, education, research, infrastructure. let's start at the bottom and work to the top. the president's proposed a $305 billion, four-year transportation program for the united states. anybody that's driven today or east e west coast coast knows we have gridlock, we have transportation problems of all kinds. so the president comes forward with this major initiative, really a significant increase in what we have done in the past. he wants to focus it first on repairing what we already have. the pot holes, the bridges that have fallen down, and others that might. saying, let's get do that. and then he goes about building the more modern transportation systems that we need, expanding our highway program, but also the rail systems, the inner city rail, the intercity rails nd the street cars and other kinds of mass transportation systems. very, very important. and he proposes how we pay for it. he says, we ought not give the oil companies a -- the big four -- a $5 billion annual tax b
tuesday morning. it increases tax credits for the working poor and expand early childhood education. the president also commented on russia's intervention in ukraine. this is about 15 minutes. 2>> good morning, everybody. i am here at powell elementary school and just had a chance to see some of the outstanding students here. i thought it was an appropriate setting for me to say a few words about the budget i sent to congress this morning because obviously the budget is not just about numbers. it's about our values. and it's about our future. and how well we are laying the groundwork for those young children that i was with a few moments ago to be able to succeed here in america. these kids may not be the most excited people in town on budget day, but it is designed with their generation and future generations in mind. in my state of the union address, i laid out an agenda to restore opportunity for all people, to uphold the principle that no matter who you are, no matter where you started, you can make it if you try, here in america. this opportunity agenda is built on four parts.
the growth of tax-free housing loans are currently cover one hundred percent of housing expenses until they cover an average number of 95% of housing expenses, with a five percent out-of-pocket contribution. why comparison, the average was late 1990's. we will also no longer reimburse for renters insurance. over three years we will reduce by $1 billion the annual nowidies provided, which total $1.4 billion. we are not shutting down commissary's. all commissaries will still get .ree rent and pay no taxes they will be able to continue to provide good deals to service members and retirees. enlistedi am an person, what does that mean for me? at the end of the day? nothing. this is probably the most difficult part of the program going forward. they are talking about trying to redress paying benefits, but a lot of the analysis shows that -- thatgoing to be done this will be nearly impossible. no one in a year like this wants to be seen cutting benefits. secretary hagel is saying that we just need to reign things in, we will not cut pay for anyone. we are just going to reduce subsidies for gr
that because you're proposing cuts in benefits, tax breaks, eliminating, slowing down pay raises for some of those on military duty that you are in fact trying to balance the budget on the backs of these people who fought these wars. >> well, first of all, that's just not true. we're not making any recommendations on any retirement changes we're going to wait until the retirement commission was was impaneled if we need to do anything on retirement. this isn't just an arbitrary, unilateral approach to trying to slow the growth just to slow the growth. we've got to look at the long term commitments to our people. half of our budget today in the pentagon goes to pay compensation retirement and medical care. that will increase significantly. we're not cutting, we're proposing slowing growth in certain areas. tax cuts, we're not cutting anybody taxes. we're asking for specific considerations. in areas where we are slowly, eventually reducing the growth of pay increases. there will still be pay increases. other areas, we think these responsible, we don't think it breaks faith with our people. b
a decision if we're going to protect tax breaks for the wealthiest americans or if we're going to make smart investments necessary to create jobs and grow our economy and expand opportunities for every american. at a time when our deficits are falling at the fastest rate in 60 years we have to decide if we're going to keep squeezing the middle class or reduce deficits responsibly while taking steps to grow the middle class. >> that was president obama outlining his $4 trillion budget for 2015 setting the stage for another budget fight. it calls for growing are the tax expansion. the president says he's paying for all of this by closing loopholes, one of which is wall street's favorite loophole which allows hedge fund managers to count their investments as income instead of capital gains. many think it faces a long road because of republicans in the house. to walk us through the budget battle, jimmy williams, an opinion writer for u.s. news.com and an msnbc contributor. how are you? >> how are you, hello. >> i want to start with one of the more important things which is that child care tax cr

of that kind of growth. one reason we're not is bigger government, more taxes, more regulation, and more debt. and we're not going to get out of it until we get off that path. so now we have a veterans bill before us. nobody, i don't believe, is more committed to veterans in this body than i've been and so many of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle want to do the right thing for veterans. but it's an audacious thing that we're seeing here today. let's review some of the history. just two months ago, every senate democrat, every senate democrat voted for a bill to cut military pensions for our soldiers. our military retirees and even our disabled veterans. it was in their bill. senate democrats then blocked not once but twice my efforts, other republican efforts to restore those cuts by closing a tax credit loophole for illegal immigrants. i see my colleague and friend, senator sanders, here. i'm going to get to the point, i'll just do it now because i know he's got a busy agenda and i think i know how the script will all play out and if i just had my glasses i might could read this bett
an economic renaissance, right? >> absolutely. if we just do a couple simple things -- we haven't had tax reform since 1986. it was before the internet got invented. we don't have a system that's competitive. immigration, that's a challenge. we need stem workers in this country to free up manufacturing. you have a bipartisan budget proposed. proposed. we put aside the shutdowns and debt ceilings and all that debate came off the table. those are small victories. >> joe ecchevaria. >> you said that differently. >> well, that's how other people say. >> coming up, mayor de blasio under fire. we'll talk to charter school founder eva moskowitz straight ahead. we'll be right back. orbiting the moon in 1971.

congress knows that our republican friends are fighting hard and have given huge tax breaks, we're talking about hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars to the wealthiest people in this country. they support a situation where one out of four major corporations in this country doesn't pay a nickel in federal income taxes. that's okay. it's okay to go to war in iraq and afghanistan without figuring out how you're going to pay for it, just putting it on the credit card. what this bill does is take less than 2% from the oco fund, less than 2% to make life a little bit better for the men and women who put their lives on the line to defend us. and it really was quite incredible to see almost all republicans -- we got two -- almost all republicans put their partisan loyalty ahead of the needs of the veterans in this country. >> are you going to take another reason at it? you got senator halorran? >> oh, we're going to take another shot at it. >> senator bernie sander, thank you. >> the american legion is saying there's a right way to vote and a wrong way and 41 senators chose the wrong way.
upstream issues the complexity of the tax code. .. >> one of the unintended consequens of the irs having to shift people from one function to answer telephone calls, one of the areas in which they do this is especially trouble aring because it's -- troubling because it's, they take people who were working identity theft cases who are working to help identity theft victims and literally having these individuals stop in midstream and move to telephone answering how do you complete a return and what have you, and which causes immense delays in helping victims of identity theft which as members of this committee know is a massively growing problem and especially if you're the subject, if you're the victim involved is very frustrating. and so it's just a point, again, of -- it's a zero sum game. they need resources to do it all. this aca -- most americans have no idea of the massive role that the irs is going to play in the implementation of the affordable care act. and the irs, once again, will have to make some tough choices as to what to focus upon. >> thank you. i don't have any further q

but then germany and austria was much more through the taxation offices having to pay certain taxes. and later as we move into the occupied countries, poland and holland and working with the banks that were taking over the jewish assets, and i think the most well known organization is easily referred to as the er or and that is an arm that was originally to be confiscating the propaganda that would be something the nazis were trying to subdue and it turned into an arm for confiscating the assets in france and belgium. so i think it's important you do is the term nazi try to keep inp in mind it is a bureaucratic effort from the top down. from where it was going to go as we all know hitler had to go and then the other leaders were collecting because they thought it showe showed them to be civid people and they were collecting them for themselves. but like any regime, i think that like many other nighties really -- not seized. could you stick to their advantage. >> did they support the war effort? >> they definitely saw the currency of the art, so the art that was to the regime and that you are f
is to give more money, tax breaks. but the way to help poor people to work harder is to kick them in the butt and their programs? why do you reward the wealthy to make more wealth and then encourage, supposedly, poor people to make more money by cutting them from money. explain the logic, please. >> don't ask me to do that because i cannot explain that logic because it's illogical. but there is a whole way of building up a infrastructure around people who are in poverty to make it easier for them to get work and for them to stay in jobs. that's providing health care, providing day care,el r early child education, nutritional programs for kids, and for their parents if they need it. family medical leave, you know, days off, paid vacation, all these sort of things that the poor don't have. transportation vouchers. because a lot of the working poor can't even get to the jobs. a center for budget and policy priorities put out a report saying even if you filled every job that was open today, you still have 2/3 of the unemployed without work. creating jobs is a whole another thing, but they don't w
, we can't.for it, so we can't pass it. those same people want to give tax breaks to companies that take jobs and factories overseas. we say we can't find the money to find a caregiver the support he needs to care for his wife, a veteran. we fight a decade-long war in afghanistan that goes unpaid for. we can't find the resources to ensure the very people who fought that war will be cared for. it would be a little more simple than that. when a business -- when a company closes down in springfield, ohio, or springfield, massachusetts, and moves to wuhan china or shihan, china, they can deductible the cost of closing the plant in springfield and deduct the cost of opening in china. that is a loophole we'd close, helping our communities, helping our tax base. and it would mean those companies wouldn't be deducting that move. and that money could then be used for these veterans programs. but, no, they say we can't find the money. mr. president, it's important to end this filibuster and pass this bill. mr. president, i ask that my -- the following remarks be in a different part of th

effen october, and he wants to take away a tax break that is currently enjoyed by hedge fund managers. so it's a very traditionalcally democratic budget. >> we heard a lot of talk that the budget is dead on arrival. how frustrating is this process of passing a budget? >> you know, first of all, budgets have been largely dead on arrival for five years. this is becoming the norm. but back before the last five years under normal circumstances the president submits a proposal in february. congress then develops it's own versions, and they compromise and a budget is passed by april 15th. now we have more or less extended one budget now for five years. it's been five years since the president signed a brand new budget bill into law. so the problem here, of course, is a budget is supposed to reflect the priorities of the government of the day. and we're dealing with a budget that was set right before you know, during a recession. it's just not sensible. but this is how washington works. >> absolutely. ali, what are you looking for at the big program. >> the fact that businesses had to take o
house republicans will unveil plans for a tax plan already declared dead on arrival. the kentucky republican said he sees no hopes for major tax overhaul this year. he blames democrats, who he says wants to recognize $1 trillion in revenue. he said changes in the tax code should make the company more competitive, not raise more money for the government. >> looking at the weather front, the west could be seeing rain today. >> definitely changes on the way. that is not the case unfortunately here across the upper midwest where the cold air is locked in place, so our cold weather woes continue with a wind chill warning in place across the u.p. of michigan where it could get 40 below zero in the overnight hours. today, we have high pressure that continues to build in, drawing down that arctic air mass into the southern plains and spreading to the east. here in texas, temperatures at much as 20 degrees colder than this time yesterday, so in addition to the rain and thunderstorm activity, we're seeing along the gulf coast further inland, we are seeing patchy, in land rain for slick road
marone to be your chief of staff at homeland security that he made personal use of monies from tax-exempt charities? >> i was generally aware of his public testimony. it was highly publicized, and it concerned events 12-17 years ago. i'm more focused on the last five years when he's worked many national security. >> were you aware when he was hired that at one tomb he secured if writing approval for the retention of a private investigator to, quote-unquote, stoop on then-mayor of philadelphia ed rendell? >> as i said, his employment by senator fumo12-17 years ago when he was in his early 20s is a matter of public record. it was highly publicized. and anybody who knows christian marone knows that when he came out of college 12-17 years ago, he worked for senator fumo to. and if you don't, you could pirg that out by spending -- figure that out by spending six seconds on the internet. >> that's exactly my concern, he's been engulf inside a variety of controversy. have you reviewed this e-mail from april 21st, it's back in 19 t 8, but concern about the department must change its practi

refusal mitt romney does about tax runneturns. the word's out he hasn't paid any taxes for ten years. let him prove he has paid taxes. he hasn't. men don't have jobs. women don't have jobs either, but women aren't abusive, most of the time. men, when they're out of work, tend to become abusive. there's plenty of horror stories being told, all of them are untrue, but in those tales, turn out to be just that, tales. stories made up from whole cloth. lies. >> so are these really tall tales, lies? these horror stories are very real for some people. in fact, we had an ophthalmologist on the show last hour who said it's very real for her. not only for her patients lost their plans, but her very own employees. she said, i'm not a liar. >> i hope he didn't call me a liar, but he perhaps has some misinformation given to him, because the stories are certainly real. i have lost patients in my practice because of that. and those patients are having a hard time finding doctors to take them, because their practices are already full. i don't think politics belong in medicine. it's a doctor/patient relat
. they even have a one-point lead over republicans when it comes to taxes. taxes. and it's an even playing field when it comes to the economy. but the only major issue where people trust republicans more than democrats is on the budget deficit, and there only by two points. yet despite all that, things look bleak for democrats in this year's midterm elections. we all know that. they don't stand a chance to regain the house. and according to an elections expert, charlie cook, they're losing their grip on the senate where republicans need to pick up net six seats to retake the majority. charlie cook put it bluntly today, saying, quote, democrats' chances of holding on to their majority in the senate is looking increasingly tenuous. there are now at least ten and potentially as many as 13 democratic-held seats in jeopardy. 10 to 13. by contrast, only two gop seats are in any meaningful danger. and that number hasn't changed in six months. things are starting to look grisly for senate democrats. that's charlie cook. another blunt way of putting it was john lovitz's classic portrayal of michael
blame democratic governor como. his taxes and an increase in state spending. so then why are a group of conservatives calling themselves republicans for cuomo still lending their support to him? here to explain, charles gasparino. there are some democrats that -- is andrew como a typical lib vertebral democrat? >> he's in the sense he talks about the wealthy. when you cut down his rhetoric, look at what new york is is, ths is the home of liberalism. he hasn't changed that. he doesn't allow fracking upstate which would alleviate the unemployment problem up there. this guy is allowing bill de blasio, the mayor of new york to essentially end charter schools, ends expansion of them. not even saying anything about it. yet you have a group of republicans, people who call themselves republicans, led by the founder of home depot, saying that conservatives and republicans should vote for this guy. and what i've been reporting and writing is that if we should support him, they shouldn't sell out so cheap. kind of like stockholm syndrome. they're stuck in new york and somehow think cuomo is the
generally other than my home mortgage. so when you used to get a lot of taxes from me by decreasing my income in half, that your tax revenue is decreasing as well. so next time secretary sebelius claims there are no indications of any job loss, you can tell her that i have lost multiple jobs and i am not being liberated. that's what the american people are facing mr. president. that is what the president of the united states denies every day when he refuses to give voice to the suffering that his health care law is causing all across this country in all 50 states, and it's time that we work together and get solutions for the health care needs of this country and not continue under what is happening with the president's health care law, which case after case after case is not giving the american people what he promises them; is giving them a lot worse and is hurting their lives, is hurting their health and is hurting their take-home pay. thank you, mr. president. i yield the floor. the presiding officer: the republican whip. mr. cornyn: mr. president, i thank the senator from wyoming, w
on the tax thing. he would not let up on that. it seems answering the clarion call on these people on these antiobamacare ad. are these real people out there? are these real people with real problems? senator harry reid took to the floor yesterday and said these are fake. watch. >> there's plenty of horror stories being told. all of them are untrue. but those tales turned out to be just that. tales. stories made up from whole cloth. lies distorted by republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements. >> clayton, when he came up and brought that thing up about mitt romney, by the way, everybody knows mitt romney doesn't pay taxes. he doesn't even know mitt romney. unsubstantiated claims. again unsubstantiated claims. all made up. really? listen. >> when i called and found out ours was being canceled, from there trying to kind of work through that healthcare.gov and just running into glitch after glitch, a dozen different glitches just trying to fill out the application. >> my doctors are no longer available in my network. this is delaying all my treatment and surgery. m
tax code. each year, a new addition of the code, with a new color is delivered to lawyers. it equates to more crime here each. i am reminded of one of my favorite scenes from a movie called duck soup. the president of the mythical country is given a report. he is asked he understands and he replies of course i do, even a 4-year-old child do that. he starts to read and says run and get me a 4-year-old child. same for the code. no one makes heads of this. our citizens have no idea the scope of federal crimes no are they aware of the coverage of specific federal crimes. it is unusable and few of them provide clarity. the danger of the code is well-known as reflected in the charter of overcriminalization. it enables them to charge people with a variety of crimes and prosecutors can do this without violating the double jeopardy law. the federal codes needs to reflect three principles: it must be written clearly, secondly it must be concise and thirdly it must be acceptable. right now no one has the time to tackle, much less understand, the issues. the issues of reform is more serious to p

by fda scientists. this is a $30 million tax funded study. the fda used many of the same tactics the industry uses. for instance, they used the charles river sprawl dolly rat. the other thing about this study is that the lab appears to have been contaminated. the control group of rats, the rats that are not supposed to be exposed to bpa so you have some sort of a baseline to measure the animals who have been exposed to the chemicals, they were somehow accidentally exposed to bpa. i have been talking about this and planning to write about this later this week. the academic scientist i have been speaking to say this essentially raises very serious questions about the validity of the finding. and it is unclear whether any conclusion can be drawn based on the study. >> what most shock to in all of your research? >> that is a good question. there are a lot of shocking things i discovered. there are couple of things. one, the fact that so few of the chemicals that are in the products we use every day have been tested for safety. as i said, there are 80,000 chemicals that are commercial
